I think it was mentioned in passing on a thread a while ago ... but I'll be damned if I can remember for sure.



Either way, it looks like an interesting effort. Anyone looking to take the plunge, though, might want to consider Amazon, where the current price is $23.07 — more than half off.

Yes, but that's is for the regular edition, non the Super Extra Luxury Collectible Rare For Fans Only Edition  :D

Whoops, good catch. The "regular" edition appears to be $34.95, though, so a trip to Amazon might still be something to consider.

+++++

Sidebar: what is it with more and more gaming products getting this sort of "special edition" nonsense lately? I'm beginning to have some bad 1990s comics-industry flashbacks ...

I suppose publishers noticed that many older, 'lapsed' gamers could be interested in products like those. Just look ad DCC - I'm pretty sure that a big part of their line never gets played, but just stashed in a bookshelf...  :wink: I think there is a significant market there: this year I'll be at the Lucca Games show sharing a booth with other two individuals and our (mine and a friend's) offerings will be ONLY vintage games and accessories (D&D, AD&D, MERP, Role Aids, boardgames...). If sales are good (and I'm quite sure they will), in 2007 we will have our own booth with a much more significant products range.

They are simply looking into this place as the example of the market conditions.

That's pretty cool. I was reading through a Dragonlance art book the other day ("Masters of Dragonlance"), and it was pretty neat getting insights into what was going on when the art was created. I've always found that as interesting as the art itself.

Got mine in the mail the other day.  Very nicely done.

It is one more way to wring a bit of cash out of a publication.  If it makes certain collectors happy and helps the game companies, I am for it.

Received ours, but it has a 1" cut in the front cover.
:evil:
I emailed them asking how to exchange but haven't received a reply yet.

I got mine last week and though I think it's great, there are some pages with a lot of empty space that could have had more cover art.

The white spaces were odd. I was thinking that maybe it was kinda like a widescreen thing to keep the image in proportion. Instead of doing a huge image that would span 2 pages like a lot of illustration books do.

Some of those pages could fit 4 covers and they only put 2 in the top half and left the bottom half empty. Not even any text in that area. I do like the book though.

Got my signed limited version today - very nice indeed.  Great to see some of those older covers reproduced in all their glory.  Some white space here and there, but generally not a problem throughout the book as a whole.  A nice complement to my older "Worlds of TSR" art book, with the added bonus of not having a Buck Rogers section...  :wink:
